Update 1 (May 22 at 12:35PM): The 3C certification agency in China has certified two variants of the Huawei Nova 5: SEA-TL10 and SEA-AL10. According to the 3C certification, the Huawei Nova 5 will be bundled with a 40W charger in the box. This confirms a recent leak, which suggested the phone will come with 40W SuperCharge support.

Alleged clear cases designed for the Huawei Nova 5 had leaked online last week, hinting at a triple-camera setup and an In-display fingerprint sensor. While Huawei is yet to confirm the existence of the Nova 5 officially, the SEA-LX1 variant of the Nova 5 has now been spotted on the EEC website, alongside the Nova 5i.

Huawei Nova 5 Granted EEC Certification

The Huawei Nova 5 and Nova 5i’s appearance on the Russian EEC certification website suggests the two phones will not be exclusive to the Chinese market. This is certainly not surprising, as the Nova 4 was launched in quite a few markets outside China by Huawei. Going by the EEC certification, the Nova 5 variant that will be sold in Russia will be SEA-LX1, while the Nova 5i variant headed to Russia is GLK-LX1U. Apart from the model numbers, however, no other information regarding the two phones has been listed by the EEC.

Going by the previously leaked cases, we can expect the Nova 5 to have a triple-camera setup on the back and an under-display fingerprint reader. It remains to be seen if the Nova 5 will have a similar hole punch display as its predecessor.

Huawei Nova 5i Certified by FCC and 3C Certification Agencies

While the Nova 5 has only been spotted on the EEC website so far, the Nova 5i has been certified by the FCC in the US and 3C in China. The GLK-AL00 and GLK-TL00 variants of the Nova 5i certified by 3C will be shipped with a 10W power adapter in the box. As for the battery capacity, FCC filings reveal the phone will have a 3900mAh capacity battery. The rest of the smartphone’s specifications, however, are yet to be revealed. On the software front, we can be fairly confident that both the Nova 5 and Nova 5i will debut with the company’s EMUI 9.0 custom user-interface out of the box.
